Newberg MOPS

Welcome to Newberg MOPS!

MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why MOPS connects moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.

Get to Know Steerting...Meet Jenny Headley

Name:  Jenny Headley

Position:  Publicity

Kids/Family:  I am married to my husband Paul and we have an 18 month old son, Simon

Favorite thing to do with my family:  We love going hiking, going to the beach (definitely my son’s favorite!), and  

Where I grew up: Tigard, Oregon.  I left the NW for about 8 years, then came back and we ended up in Newberg to be close to family and my husband’s job.

Hobbies (what I enjoy doing when a have some time to myself): I always love a good book.  Knitting is probably the thing that relaxes me most.  And I enjoy getting out doors…whether it is hiking or just going for a walk and enjoying the fresh air.  It clears my head.

What I enjoy most about MOPS:  The community.  It is wonderful to arrive on a Monday morning, and not only have breakfast provided but find the understanding and encouragement of other women who have similar joys and challenges of parenting a little one.

Why I joined Steering:  I have always enjoyed working with a team to make things come together, getting to know those that I work with and seeing something come out of all the work we do.  This is a wonderful group of women and I am enjoying getting to know them!

What I am looking forward to this year with MOPS:  As I look forward to the coming year I am looking forward to growing personally and in community through Mops.  Learning from all the women, supporting—and accepting support—as we journey through whatever life brings this year.
